My favorite part of public relations is working with the media. As a former broadcast reporter, I know the ins and outs of the industry, and I enjoy being able to pitch a great story and see it come to fruition.

2. Why did you join FPRA Tampa Bay?
I joined FPRA in order to meet other people in the public relations industry when I moved here from Orlando.

3. What’s your favorite social media platform for PR?
My favorite social media platform for PR is Facebook because most companies have embraced the channel and are now comfortable with it as a two-way communication tool.

4. How do you stay involved in the Tampa Bay community?
I stay involved in the Tampa community by participating in outreach events through the hospital I work with, and I’m also involved in several athletic social groups.

5. What do you do for fun?
I enjoy yoga, pilates, paddle boarding, reading, playing with my two dogs and going to the beach.
